Instagram Ads For Pictures Stories and Videos Are Now Live

Instagram to start displaying Advertisement on Instagram Stories, pictures and short videos that will be on Instagram's server for 24hours before disappearing. These Ads are already live on Instagram. You can see Ads when scrolling through your Instagram feed.

There will also be an interstitial Ads, i.e; full-screen ads but it will be skippable after some few seconds. As you can see, Facebook is about to launch their own Ads on Facebook videos you upload and also make cool $$$ with it.

This is what Instagram has to say,

>>150M people are making use of this feature per day, the same as Snapchat’s daily users. However, the video ads will be marked 'Sponsored' to let users differentiate ads and the main videos.

Below is the official statement from James Quarles, the VP of Instagram Business;
Adverts are designed for “reach” rather than immediately to drive sales and will not have links to websites.

Do you think this was a professional move by Instagram? I haven't seen any before so I can't say if it would affect user experience.. Thanks for reading..

How To Clear The Cache Of an Application On Your Smartphone

If you notice that an error message pops up repeatedly whenever you try to launch a particular app, then chances are that this app is the cause of the problem, because sometimes it might create unwanted files and save them to the phone's memory with or without our permissions.

Do you know constant continuous accumulation of this unwanted files might lead to hanging or freezing of your SmartPhone? In this article, I will be showing you easy steps on how you can clear the cache and free up memory of such application and prevent any incidents you didn't bargain for..

Go to Settings > Apps and find the app in question. Tap the app and on the following page hit Clear cache. This might do the trick.

If that still doesn't help, you can clear the data for the app, too. This means that you will lose any game progress or chat conversations, etc., so you might want to back up your app data first. You will find the Clear data button above Clear cache.

If neither solution proves fruitful, the next step is to try uninstalling the app (which can be done from the same page as clearing the cache and data) and reinstalling it later.

Drop your comments if you require further assistance below.. Thank for reading.

5. Mi Port - single cable that connects Mi TV Bar to the display and carries all signals to and from the display for a cleaner look

6. Understated transparent stand makes Mi TV 4 look suspended in the air even without mounting on the wall

Facebook Will Soon Introduce Advertisement on Facebook Videos

The CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg,  is set to introduce advertisement on Facebook videos. As you can see on YouTube when you want to stream a Video, there will be an advertisement that will be displayed first, which you can skip after 5 seconds.

This new advertisement coming to Facebook videos is called Mid-roll Ad because they will appear or interrupt, whenever a user is watching a video for about 20 seconds but this advertisement will only be available for any Facebook video that are at least 90 seconds long.

So with this, Facebook users or publishers will be able to monetize their videos and earn money while Facebook will take 45% for all sales to itself - just like YouTube does. Very soon, all videos on Facebook will have this advertisement and Facebook users are now watching 100 million hours of video per day so this will generate cool revenue to Mark Zuckerberg.

However, this ad has been tested for live videos and the new rollout will be available for all videos on Facebook. We also know about the notifications provided by Facebook about the introduction of ads in Facebook groups.

Do you think the introduction of ads on every aspect of Facebook is a good move by Mark??
